When I first saw this car it was one a used car lot, with a rust-colored four-door.  They wanted $1000 apiece for the cars.  He told me that he bought the them from original owner (of the two-door that I now own).  The two-door has been sitting in a garage since 1967 with plans of restoring it.  The four-door was bought as a parts car.

When the guy at the car lot could not find anyone interested in these cars, he sold them to a local savage yard.  But not before his crew decided to break all the side glass, the windshield and took a tire iron to the sides and roof of both cars (what morons).  I bought the two-door from the savage yard for $500.  There is enough there to save.  So far I have been lead to believe that a Lloyd Black bought this car new from a dealership in Lawrence, Kansas.
